Hello hello dearest readers and I hope that you’re feeling absolutely tip-top today.
Judging by all the updates in the Love My Dress Facebook group, this time of year isn’t just busy with weddings, it’s also super busy with hen-dos too (mine is this weekend coming – eek!). It’s fair to say that the hen-do has come a long way from the celebrations that our parents enjoyed and I’m all for spending a bit more time with your best friends.
If you’re looking for an intimate and luxurious London hen do then look no further than The Zetter Townhouse where cocktails, afternoon tea and the ultimate sleepover can all be yours.
Let me quickly introduce you to The Zetter Townhouse before we leap into off-the-scale fabulous hen dos. In fact, there are two townhouses right in the heart of London so you can choose the one that suits your style best. Will you opt for The Zetter in super cool Clerkenwell or will you choose The Zetter in fabulous Marylebone? Whether you go east or west, there’s no doubt that your hen do will truly be the best.
So, let’s talk about hen dos in more detail shall we and, with two locations across London, The Zetter Townhouse is the perfect place to host an intimate hen celebration with your closest friends. You could take over a suite for the ultimate girlie sleepover, host an elegant and sophisticated afternoon or learn how to make some of The Zetter Townhouse’s signature cocktails in your very own masterclass and tasting your handiwork is most definitely encouraged!
The two sites on different sides of London town mean that your hen celebrations will have a distinct style depending which townhouse you choose. Spend a day hitting the shops on Oxford Street and retire to The Zetter Marylebone for an afternoon tea and luxe night in if that suits you. Alternatively, stroll around East London, stopping off at Exmouth Market or Columbia Road before you head back to The Zetter in Clerkenwell where you can take over one of the private dining rooms to enjoy a delicious dinner together.
There’s no doubt about it – the ingredients for a memorable hen do have to be a fabulous location, great food and drink and the best company. The Zetter Townhouse allows you to tick the first two from that list without hesitation.
Cocktails at The Zetter Townhouse are a speciality and I would encourage you to indulge. The cocktail list is peppered with bespoke elements and carefully concocted cordials and tinctures that represent the townhouse’s fictional ‘proprietor’ and they’re all incredible. Could there be a prettier sounding cocktail than a Peony Martini? Gin, Peony Vermouth and pickled grapefruit will certainly set your taste-buds tingling as will a Winter Rose with white port and rose and strawberry water.
Afternoon tea has become a real hen do favourite of late and the menu at The Zetter Townhouse features all your favourites such as cakes, scones and finger sandwiches with a selection of iconic filling and there’s also a range of hearty treats too such as mini Croque Monsieur, Scotched quail’s egg and truffled sausage rolls with homemade brown sauce. You can choose whether you’d like to accompany your afternoon tea with cocktails, bubbles or a thirst-quenching choice of teas. There’s also a yummy menu of nibbles and treats if you’re looking for a snack or light meal before heading out. Whatever you choose, you certainly won’t go hungry!
And that’s not all – The Zetter Townhouses are able to offer a number of bespoke services and activities for hen dos. Just speak to the events team at the townhouses and let them create your perfect itinerary that might include cocktail masterclasses or manicurists and masseuses you can pamper you in your suite.
This really will be the most heavenly hen do and it’s sure to be one that you and your girls will never forget
